I know that you have been looking forward to sweaty self portraits all day long. My helmet size=XXL, I know you think I am kidding but I am not, ginormous heads run in my family.
As many of you know, I absolutely LOVE THE GYM.
Well, figuring I am taking another break from running due to shin splints (just a few days) I was left gymless and runningless this morning.
What’s a girl to do…….GET CREATIVE!! I am REALIZING that exercise doesn’t JUST mean running and getting muscles doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym.
WHAT DID I DO THIS MORNING……I downloaded a workout online from Women’s Health that required NO equipment and got to work outside on the porch. Bet you didn’t know I could jump and get about 2 inches off of the ground.
I followed up with a YOGA download. Just picture doing yoga on the front deck with fresh mountain air and birds chirping everywhere around you, you can punch me now. You can read more about the workout I downloaded HERE.
Another thing I realized…there are SO MANY forms of exercise. I wanted to get a small workout in before mountain biking because I thought it was going to be a 60 beats per minute kind of activity…….boy, was I wrong…IT KICKED MY TRASH.
Prepare for photo overload.
Don’t pretend like you don’t suck in when you get your pictures taken and all of your organs travel up to your face to make it extra round.
I know my woman parts are growing…I am not preggo….it’s just what happens when you are on high estrogen along with a high ice cream diet.
Good thing my running capri’s have a little pocket…..heaven forbid I go longer than 12 minutes without reapplication of the good stuff. Don’t worry that man told me I was extra cool for taking pictures of my own back.
Note to self: Remember to change out of your Tom’s into real workout shoes before you go mountain biking.
See…it pooped me OUT!!
and then this happened…..
So, this happened…… Sobe Pina Colada!?! Don’t mind if I do!
Grandpa White works up at Big Bear and hooked us up with the tickets and food!! THANK YOU GRANDPA!!!
When you don’t have a gym and running isn’t an option what are your FAVORITE ways to break a sweat!?!?!
If you could only choose ONE thing to take with you on a day long activity what would it be (not including food)!
-SOME FORM OF CHAPSTICK/LIPGLOSS and lotion comes in a close second….I cannot STAND having dry skin.
What are you having/did you already have for DINNER tonight? Yes, I am already thinking about it and need some IDEAS!!!
